• Provide administrative services that are more cost effective, of higher quality -- or both

• Better serve the needs of selected special needs populations

..for the success of all our learners in ways that maintain the individuality of each district .


EBEC actively seeks out and develops state-of-the-art programs and services from the national stage that support the mission of the EBEC and imports them to advance the learning community. EBEC strives to maintain a dynamic system of support services that continuously responds to the needs of the member districts.
